Default Today on Savage River

Caught my second largest brown trout today on the Savage River in Western Maryland. He was 14 1/2, almost 15". Caught him with a 6X tippet and a #20 Griffiths Gnat. Spotted him in a pool below a suspension bridge over the river. Wasn't rising until I got in across from him and I saw him come up and swirl at something. First time the gnat went over him, he slurped it and then the net. I was pretty excited. Saw him to the right in the pool pic below the rock sticking out.

Nice fish. I have never been to the Savage but see that I need to get it on my list. How hard is it to fish? I hate streams where the fish are like professors and always schooling me.
